Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence



We are living in a time
When personal choices
Can impact so many others
As a matter of life or death,
Disparity never so clear
Selfishness disguised as freedom,
Choosing economy over humanity
Is the real tragedy
Because if we let go of man made doctrines,
Reject the fear of scarcity
And instead embrace abundance,
If we focus on taking care of one another
Everything will be all right

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word Challenge #229: Choices

Author: Dancing Echoes

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.

  6. I don’t see many photos in true black & white (not the grayscale commonly called “black & white”).  The image here is a fine example of why the distinction is not a quibble.  True B&W fits the eloquent prose poem’s mood better than grayscale or color would.

  7. Why thank you. Indeed, I was trying to make the choice black and while.
